The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday called on opposition parties to show respect for the office of the President as it remains the only institution that unites the nation.
In a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, the ruling party decried the manner opposition parties “abuse President Goodluck Jonathan in the name of criticism.”
The statement reads: “The Presidency is the highest institution in the country and it deserves our collective respective. There should be a limit between criticism and abuse.
“That President Jonathan is from a minority geo- political zone should not be the reason why the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and other opposition parties should be heaping insults and abuses on him in the name of criticisms.
“There must be a limit and we implore that we use the spirit of the New Year to say that enough is enough.”
